interesting idea ... but ... I find myself more and more simply listening 
what is there ... that is, instead of listening to music when I'm walking
around, I find it more and more interesting to just listening to whatever
sound is there, maybe in the Cage sense that everything is music. 

I bet that using a chip to make everything sound synthetic would quickly
sound boring. Listening to the real world won't ever get boring as long as
you're interested in the real world :-)
